I made a booking to celebrate my husband's birthday, and although we dined relatively early, the restaurant quickly filled up, contributing to the convivial atmosphere.

Had a fantastic meal here with a group of friends, doing the Feasting menu. The whole experience was absolutely outstanding, from booking, to the staff, drinks, and particularly the food. Can't wait to go back.

Much underrated by Auckland's "smart dining" set, possibly because of its location which is not where self-aware sophisticates go to eat, this is one of New Zealand's best. Nominally it's a "game" restaurant, but it's far more subtle than that: wild boar, hare, rabbit, spit-roasted...More
